The Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary Soldier in Washington Square in Philadelphia was completed in 1957. It was designed by architect G. Edwin Brumbaugh and includes a bronze cast of Jean-Antoine Houdon's sculpture of George Washington. The Tomb includes remains disinterred, after archeological examination, from within the park from when it was a cemetery. The remains are that of a soldier, but it is uncertain if he was Colonial or British. (Source: USHistory.org)
